  1. Hi fellows!

    I’ve succeeded somehow to install Slackware Linux, but much more tough job still remains – X Window System (now I face black screen with ‘$’ sign). So I daresay I’ll need your help soon. The first thing I would like to know – is it *really* difficult, as it is said in Volkerding’s manual? What’s your experience?

    Thank you.

    It'll tell you how to startx during the boot.
    A note about slackware, it doesn't like easy passwords, I learned the hardway, pick a tough one, or you may end up not being able to log in at all ;)
